Alexious My top 5 bad habits that I see from wargamers.

1). Yes that is a GW figure... its from 1990 before you were born. Yes its legit. Yes things did happen before you were born.

2). Have you heard of soap? Its called washing oneself. I understand your socially awkward, I was too at your age, but I did wash. No I don't find it attractive.

3). No I don't require the commentary of 50000 people who are walking past.

4). You mean that you thought it would be ok to throw the dice one at a time when your playing guard with 30 figures all shooting now?

5). Congratulations I am glad you collected that or had that figure or need to tell me about your army which isnt here right now. Can I come over and see it at 3am or a better time as I am trying to play right now.

Samules Yeah but it makes perfect sense if you explain it for 10 seconds. And personally I think I do roll better that way but there isn't any rule against it so they can't legally stop you.

It might have something to do with rolling 2 dice instead of 1. I don't know about you but I roll better with 2 dice instead of 1

All it's supposed to do is speed up the rolling apparently.

Firing with a TL weapon? Roll 2 dice to hit. If both miss, nothing happens. If only one misses, continue as normal

Personally, it seems silly to me and slightly confusing for someone who doesn't know whats happening

VX485 Rolling behind terrain so i can't see the results, rolling scatter dice at opposite end of table (not near blast template/deep strike location)

Ask for their list of approved/dissaproved rolling conventions. If they have a list and 2 dice for reroll is on the dissaproved list THEN concede the point.

Ask for a copy of How to Roll Ciditel Dice while your at it!

Use livestock. They're easier to find, struggle less, GW keeps its customer base, and the Gods don't know the difference anyway

Furthermore, if you mutilate the livestock after sacrifice, people might think there's aliens in the area, and you're off the hook!
